One, Two, Three…Basic

Not here is the help

Not here is the rescue

But looking above

Like the servants in hope

Awaiting a Master

Of Heavenly mercy

Eyes straining upward

Our wounded hands grope.

Here we find greed

And cowardly slander

Taskmaster’s whip

And bigotry’s curse

Luxury judging

The struggling one’s battle

Gossip and grabbing

And other things worse.

Come Lord of Ages

And rescue your darlings

End the oppression

And make your power known.

Vindicate now all the

Simple and trusting

Dress them in righteousness

Drawn to your throne.

(Consider the mighty agenda of Psalm 123)
